Elementary principles

Here’s a shout out to many of the readers in this zip code who are at various mile markers of understanding in this pilgrim way.

There is a common thought that is rolled around, and while the intentions are good, like most things, there is a more excellent way. So in all its simplicity, here goes:

God said it.

I believe it.

That settles it.

On the surface, and without trying too hard to find fault, these few lines do present truth. Think about these three thoughts before you proceed, and ask yourself how, and in what way, could the idea here be improved upon…and then tell me if there is a slight difference.

God said it.

That settles it.

There. Much better wouldn’t you say? ย God’s word is settled whether men believe it or not. As a matter of fact, it is ‘forever settled in heaven,’ as the good Psalm reads. So we may as well get on board with the idea that God needs no help from us to settle his word, but it sure is nice of Him to give us a heads up that WE may be settled in our hearts.

Indeed, may our hearts indict a good matter.

    Ha..nice rewording.

    It was indeed settled by God, not by whether we believed it.

    An even better arrangement would be:
    God said it.
    That settles it.
    Therefore I believe it.
